Lovely article. ❤ If I could add — one day you decide to forgive yourself for not being the perfect image your 20-something-year-old always held in her mind. You fall in love with the actual real body who has carried through the whole of Your Life. You bless Her. You thank Her. You see Her as the bloody miracle She is. As the piece of The Divine on loan.
That’s when aging no longer matters. That’s when those extra pounds become a blessing against lean times. That’s when you begin to care for and about Her more than you give a shit about what the world thinks.
That’s the moment in time — You become a Crone. You adjust your crown and the crowds part before you. Because you stand tall in the power that had been inside of you all along.
You have, at long last, discovered your most beautiful wings.
